Natures Botox

Nature’s Botox

Our culture is incredibly ageist about getting older, I do not want you to conclude that I am adding to it. However, I do believe in EMBRACE AGING WITH HEALTH & GRACE, from a naturopath stand point, so that we can add some youthfulness to our cells from the inside out. 

It’s not about preserving youth—it’s about preserving YOU and your quality of life. 

Aging Happens, Make Sure You’re Doing It HEALTHY

We’re all going to age,  the key is to manage how well your body ages. Each of us is unique, and our bodies age in different  ways,
Fundamentally the things that make us age in an unhealthy ways include:
1. chronic inflammation
2. oxidative damage
3. nutrient deficiencies.

WHAT AGES US?

Did you know, Additionally, the thoughts we put into our brains have powerful genetic effects on the production of healing proteins in our bodies. What you think, feel, and believe constantly changes the genetic expression and chemical composition of your body on a moment-by-moment basis. High stress levels – the result of poisonous toxic thoughts- suck biochemical resources away from cell repair and kill brain cells and cause us to age faster. With over 1400 chemical reactions and more than thirty hormones shifting chaotically in response to toxic thinking, what was good can become really, really bad–a poisonous concoction, indeed! Life and death are in the tongue. When you begin to understand that with every feeling and thought you are performing epigenetic and genetic engineering on your DNA, you realize you actually have a degree of leverage over your mental and physical health that can make a critical difference to your life…and the lives of those around you. -Caroline Leaf
 

What ages us to age faster than we want to? A number of things including poor diet, ingestion, exposure to  toxins, stress hormones and  imbalanced hormones all age us. But scientists now say that free-radical damage may be one of the primary causes of aging, including premature wrinkling of the skin and age-related diseases. In short, free radicals are oxygen molecules that have lost an electron through interaction with other molecules. The resulting oxygen molecules are very unstable and reactive. In order to restore their missing electron, they steal them from other “healthy” molecules, thus creating more free radicals and in the process, damaging cells. The result in the body is like rust on steel or what we call wrinkles.



The good news is that we can influence all of these things with diet, smart supplementation, and lifestyle choices.

Start by reducing inflammation and oxidative damage…

You’ve heard it before, but it always needs repeated: Eat your Vegi's! Vegetables contain a veritable rainbow of antioxidant phytonutrients like polyphenols and carotenoids that have been shown to reduce inflammation and oxidative damage, reducing the risk of many chronic diseases, and directly impact how well you age. Be sure to include a rainbow of color—red, blue, purple, green, orange, and yellow—in your daily diet. Additionally, regular consumption of wild game, red meat, fish—especially fatty, cold-water fish like wild salmon, trout, oysters and sardines.

Antioxidant supplements like CoQ1, alpha lipoic acid (ALA), and vitamins C,and E, are excellent choices to reduce oxidative damage to cells, mitochondria (the “power plants” in our cells that produce energy), DNA, and other bodily tissues.

Add - omega-3 fish oils - EPA and DHA are some of the most researched in relation to their ability to reduce inflammation.

Also Curcumin,and turmeric, acts on a number of different pathways in the body to effectively reduce inflammation. It is also a powerful antioxidant, and research suggests that it preserves mitochondrial function. ( I recommend Total FLM as a supplement ) 

By reducing inflammation and excessive oxidation in the body, you are doing a lot of damage control that will allow your body to age with ease.

Maintain Your Strength and Mobility

Feeling confident in your body means preserving mobility, flexibility, and strength. It also means maintaining a healthy weight, which supports overall health. As we grow older we lose both muscle mass and bone mass (particularly women) and our joints begin to experience some “wear and tear.” These body systems all work together, so it’s important to stay proactive in maintaining the healthy function of each of them. For most people, good nutrition, physical activity, and certain supplements significantly slow both muscle and bone loss and support healthy joints.

What to eat:

Protein intake of 1 to 1.2 grams per kg of body weight is optimal for older adults to maintain muscle mass (this equates to about 64-77 grams/day for a140-pound woman and 77-92 grams/day for a 170-pound man). Good sources of protein are naturally-raised beef and wild game, poultry, and eggs;  natural dairy products like cottage cheese and Greek yogurt; and organic whey protein. Including a variety of vegetables will provide phytonutrients that reduce both inflammation and oxidation, especially helpful for joint health.

What to take:

Amino All
Complete essentials
Total joint plus
Complete Bone

What to do:

Stay active! Strength training, yoga, tai chi, walking, gardening, dancing—find an activity you love and do it. Regular exercise not only improves muscle strength and bone health, it also reduces inflammation and delays the onset of dementia.

My Recipe for Nature's Botox:

In order for these natural super ingredients to work I suggest following these steps. 

Step 1: In the evening, Cleanse the skin with Carefree Cleanser, a gentle rinse-less natural cleanser and toner all-in-one 

Step 2: One night a week- massage on a thin layer of Mountain Mud Masque to the entire face and neck with ring fingers working in a circular motion with light pressure to activate microcirculation beneath the surface. Let sit for 15-20 minutes. This works like a magnet to pull grime and sweat from your skin. 

Step 3: With your ring finger dab Winks + Kisses around your eyes and lips ( I put it on my entire face) 

Step 4: Gently apply X-treme Cream And then get a good night’s sleep, allowing the organic X-treme Cream  to work graveyards replenishing the skin. 

Step 4: In the morning wake up the skin and apply Conqueror Cream  with tint. Go face your day with glow and guard against free radicals.

Step 5: Smile, Get outside,Pray, Eat good, Sweat, and repeat.

The collagen layer of our skin is especially susceptible to free radical damage that arises from sun and pollution exposure, resulting in a process known as cross-linking. Cross-linking of the naturally supple collagen molecules makes them become stiff and inflexible, eventually resulting in skin that looks and feels “old and leathery.” Free radicals that are produced when the sun hits the skin activate molecules known as transcription factors, which signal cellular DNA to produce proteins that are pro-inflammatory and harmful to the cell. This same process also produces collagen-digesting enzymes that can leave tiny defects in the skin which give rise over time to wrinkles.

1. 90–95 percent of skin aging is over sun exposure—specifically damage done by ultraviolet rays to the collagen fibers in the dermis. If you do not believe this, just examine the skin on your buttocks. You will notice something very important: It is very smooth and wrinkle-free! The reason for this is because this skin is generally protected  from the sun for most of your life. Skin that is chronically overexposed to the sun is in a constant state of inflammation. While this mild inflammation of a suntan plumps up the skin temporarily and gives it a youthful appearance, once the tan goes away, wrinkles appear. And any tissue inflammation begins the metabolic cascade that eventually causes degenerative changes ( wrinkles). 

2. Cigarette smoking also produces free radicals and is another of the skin’s worst enemies. The ill effects of smoking become very obvious at mid-life. Past studies have shown that the skin of smokers ages twice as fast after the age of 30 as the skin of non-smokers. In addition, smoking directly poisons the ovaries. This leads to decreased levels of estrogen, which is necessary to help maintain elastin and collagen fibers.

 

Production of free radicals in the human body

Free radicals are derived either from normal essential metabolic processes in the human body or from external sources such as exposure to X-rays, ozone, cigarette smoking, air pollutants, and industrial chemicals.

Some internally generated sources of free radicals are:
Inflammation
Phagocytosis
Arachidonate pathways
Exercise
Ischemia injury

Some externally generated sources of free radicals are:
Cigarette smoke
Environmental pollutants
Radiation
Certain drugs, pesticides
Industrial solvents
Ozone

Oxidative stress and human diseases

A role of oxidative stress has been postulated in many conditions, including anthersclerosis, inflammatory condition, certain cancers, and the process of aging. Oxidative stress is now thought to make a significant contribution to all inflammatory diseases (arthritis, vasculitis, glomerulonephritis, lupus erythematous, adult respiratory diseases syndrome), ischemic diseases (heart diseases, stroke, intestinal ischema), hemochromatosis, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, emphysema, organ transplantation, gastric ulcers, hypertension and preeclampsia, neurological disorder (Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy), alcoholism, smoking-related diseases, and many others. An excess of oxidative stress can lead to the oxidation of lipids and proteins, which is associated with changes in their structure and functions.

Is your body in fast or slow oxidation?

 

Definitions Of The Oxidation Type And The Oxidation Rate

Fast oxidation is defined as a hair calcium/potassium ratio less than 4 and a hair sodium/magnesium ratio greater than 4.17. The lower the calcium/potassium ratio or the higher the sodium/magnesium ratio, the faster the oxidation rate.
Slow oxidation is defined on a hair mineral analysis as a calcium/potassium ratio greater than 4 and a sodium/magnesium ratio less than 4.17. The higher the calcium/potassium ratio or the lower the sodium/magnesium ratio, the slower the oxidation rate.

 

Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA), is an analytical test which measures your mineral content and heavy metal exposure. Test results reflect how much of these elements are in your tissues and provide a vivid picture of your internal environment, that very few tests can reveal.

 Have you ever wondered…?
  • Am I getting enough essential vitamins and minerals?
  • Am I eating foods that provide enough or perhaps too much of a particular nutrient?

Did you know…

  • 90% of people unknowingly have toxic metals such as mercury from fillings, vaccines and pollution.
  • Simply taking one-a-day multivitamins doesn’t ensure you are getting everything you need.
  • Even if you take supplements, you may not be absorbing them.
  • Many nutrients work together so a balance in their relationship is just as important as individual nutrients
  • Health concerns such as fatigue, weak immunity and sleep problems can stem from nutrient imbalances?
  • Nutrition supplements, when properly used, can have tremendous therapeutic effects. However, taking supplements without first knowing what the body needs, may actually have unintended consequences like causing shortages of other nutrients. This only further complicates health problems by upsetting the natural balance of the body.
  • Calcium supplements or high-calcium-containing foods can help prevent osteoporosis in one person, but actually contribute to brittle bones in another.
  • Zinc is commonly known to help fight the effects of a virus, but too much zinc can contribute to bacterial infections.
  • Copper is an essential nutrient, but excessive amounts can cause depression, weight gain, PMS symptoms and frontal headaches.
  • Iron is necessary to prevent anemia, but too much can cause a different type of anemia, and contribute to migraines, arthritis and cancer.
